Part of our mandate at the Office of the Dean of Students is to encourage student involvement and leadership outside of the classroom. Involvement takes many forms, and our office is proud to offer a number of opportunities through mentorship, leadership & development, community outreach, and academic success.
The Woodsworth College Students’ Association (WCSA) is the body which represents students. It provides a range of services, programs, activities, and intramural events in order to make each and every Woodsworth College student’s experience at the University of Toronto the richest, fullest and most rewarding possible. Positions on WCSA are elected in the Spring and in the Fall. Interested in participating in a club at Woodsworth College? WCSA supports a number of clubs based on a variety of interests—movies, art, video games, LGBTQ, etc. Don’t see a club that interests you? Find out how to start your own club through WCSA!

The Woodsworth Residence Council (WRC) is a student run organization that is responsible for residence orientation, resident advocacy, and social/educational programming. They work with the residence staff to continually enhance the residence experience. The council is formed by elected residents in various executive positions, as well as representatives from each floor. Click here to visit the WRC’s website.
Involvement at U of T
We also encourage students to get involved in university-wide opportunities in order to broaden their range of experience. There are a large number of opportunities available for University of Toronto students in a variety of areas: student unions or program associations, clubs, campus organizations, athletics, etc. If you are interested in exploring your options from areas across U of T, please visit our directory of Central UofT opportunities.
The Co-Curricular Record
Launched in September, 2013, the Co-Curricular Record (CCR) provides a database of activities that allows you to search for opportunities beyond of the classroom, and keep track of your accomplishments. It connects your involvement with your career prospects by linking the competencies gained from your experiences to skills that employers and graduate schools look for. At the end of your undergraduate career, you receive an official University of Toronto document validating your many experiences and activities from the CCR. Woodsworth College offers a number of Co-Curricular Record opportunities, and the directory is searchable by College affiliation.For more information, visit www.ccr.utoronto.ca, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
With so many opportunities to get involved, it can be hard to know where to get started! Luckily, you can book an appointment with the Woodsworth’s Student Life Coordinator, Christina Alcena to help find the perfect involvement opportunity that meets your goals.
